Welcome from TBI President

Temple President, Stephen Sickerman, the Temple  Board, and members invite you to learn more about our congregation. We currently conduct Shabbat services once a month, lead by our Rabbi or ISJL Education Fellow.  Services are normally the second Friday evening of the month and our schedule is published on this website and monthly newsletter, The Azoy. Once safe to do so, we plan to return to our pre-Covid protocol of preceding Friday night services with a communal Shabbat pot luck dinner. The entree is provided by a congregant and attendees are encouraged to bring a side dish, dessert, or beverage to share. Pease join us for Shabbat dinner at 6:00 pm if your schedule allows, or just for the 7:00 pm service.  When possible, on Saturday of Shabbat weekends at 12 pm we conduct a Lunch & Learn. Bring your lunch and join the discussion on the parshat of the week or another topic of religious importance. Later that day Havdalah is celebrated at sundown. Get full details of TBI Upcoming Events at the top of this page or visit our Calendar page. We encourage you to share these pages with friends and family.

Welcome to our Temple!   – Stephen Sickerman, President
